    I was doing chart Q. A.'s one night on nurses notes. I came across one that was short and to the point, but when read out loud was hilarious:
    "Vaginal packing out. Doctor in."

    A nurse on the OB floor reviewing notes saw this on a chart:

    student nurse writes: Breasts engorged and lactating. Encouraged to breastfeed newborn.

    Nurse questions the student nurse in front of the whole group and decides to "punish" student nurse. Turns out that the patient on the chart was one of the few ones on the floor in for a D&C.

    I hope it was just a long night for the resident...

    Male came in with an abscess on his left leg with a hx of diabetes. The resident wrote on the orders:

    CNS of left leg.

    And all i could think was...what does the central nervous system have to do with this? And this I realized she should have written

    C & S of left leg for culture and sensitivity.
